Huge congratulations this week to James Weir who not only picked up an All Star award for the Lory Meagher team but he also became the first hurler from Sligo to win Player of the Year. This is a huge honour for St. Farnan's and for Easkey hurling team and is well merited as James has performed consistently well for both club and county throughout the year. James will be honoured at Strictly Come Dancing for his achievements. James will also be performing on the night so please come along to pay tribute to him.
